A Beginner’s Guide to Trauma: Understanding the Toxic Effects of the Disorders of Extreme Stress (PAPERBACK)
Trauma is the current zeitgeist. If Oprah is co-writing books and shows on it, it’s big. Many outstanding books have been written about trauma, long before Oprah came along. But since she has, there’s been no shortage of Influencers, Grammars, Tubers, and Tik-Tokers throwing their hat into the ring … ad infinitum – lapping up the remnant gravy that spills from a gilded cup.
But… has there been a book that tells you, in plain and simple English, what trauma actually is? Where it comes from, what it does to the brain, how many different types of traumas there are, how it creates behavioural problems and how to recognised it when it arrives.
A Beginner’s Guide To Trauma includes diaries that capture the rage and despair that emerges during therapy, piercing a few scared hides including sections on, Did Big Pharma Cause Addiction? Does trauma cause ADHD? What are the real consequences of trauma in childhood violence; of being brought up by addicted parents, abandoned and neglected? This book taps into the author’s personal story and offers thoughts on recovery that centre on an understanding of our individual molecular genetics.
Dr Reshie is the ultimate insider. Trained as a doctor and poised for a medical career, he stood instead and watched with powerless horror as his life slid into the harrowing darkness of a junkie. One of the very few to escape with his life, he re-trained as a psychologist and now works with the same trauma that created him. He doesn’t see both sides of the coin. He is both sides of the coin.
Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride.
A Beginner’s Guide To Trauma explodes accepted knowledge about the definitions and effects of trauma and offers a solid insight to a new path of recovery.
